Trupanion and Boehringer Ingelheim announce a strategic collaboration to enhance pet healthcare, providing pets and their families increased access to high-quality disease treatment and protection. This partnership aims to leverage collective expertise for early detection and better management of pet diseases.

Trupanion, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRUP), North America’s leading provider of medical insurance for cats and dogs, and Boehringer Ingelheim, a global leader in animal disease prevention and treatment, today announced a strategic collaboration. This partnership is set to enhance access to high-quality healthcare and disease treatment for pets and their families.

“We’re thrilled and humbled that Boehringer chose us as a partner. With this relationship, lifetime care meets lifetime coverage at a time when pet parents need us more than ever,” said Dr. Steve Weinrauch, BVMS, MRCVS, Chief Veterinary and Product Officer at Trupanion.

Both companies share a strong commitment to caring for pets throughout their lives. This collaboration will enable them to leverage their collective expertise and data to derive insights for the early detection of risk factors for common pet conditions. The aim is to support earlier detection and better management of diseases. Together, the companies will focus on continuing education for veterinarians and consumers, product extensions, promotions, peer-reviewed publications, and other initiatives to support pet healthcare.

“We are excited to work with Trupanion because they are so closely aligned with our mission of creating a world where pets and those who care for them thrive,” said Daniel Watkins, head of the Boehringer Ingelheim Pet business. “Our dedication to driving industry-leading advancements in animal disease treatments and prevention complements Trupanion’s best-in-class product. By working together, we will open new doors in the animal health industry for the veterinary community and pet owners alike.”

This collaboration ensures that when a pet is enrolled with Trupanion, their families will have the option to receive dedicated information and support from Boehringer to help manage their pet’s health. Boehringer will also support Trupanion’s goal of ensuring all pets receive the best medical care possible through its extensive veterinary relationships. Both companies are fully committed to supporting veterinarians, pets, and their families through every step of their care journey.

Trupanion’s market-leading growth is driven by its unique solution for unexpected veterinary costs. As the only pet medical insurance provider that can pay veterinarians directly at checkout in seconds, Trupanion eliminates the need for pet parents to submit claims and wait for reimbursement. This allows families and veterinary hospitals to focus on the best treatment options without financial concerns. With unlimited payouts for life, unique lifetime pricing, and 24/7/365 live support, Trupanion provides families and their pets with the support they need most. The company has proudly paid nearly $3 billion in veterinary invoices on behalf of its members. As inflation and medical advancements increase veterinary care costs, the need for high-quality, comprehensive medical insurance for pets has never been greater.

“We couldn’t be more excited for the new ways we’ll be able to support pets, pet parents, and the veterinary community through this collaboration moving forward,” added Dr. Weinrauch.
